Between 1925 and 1964 Kent acted in 52 films and a handful of TV shows including Rawhide. He had a successful career as a lead and supporting actor in the silent era but failed to make the transition to sound films and was cast largely in bit parts until his retirement in 1964. His last film role was an uncredited part in the Elvis film Viva Las Vegas. His most notable roles were in John Ford's Hangman's House (1928), Seas Beneath (1931) and opposite Jean Arthur in The Masked Menace (1927). In 1933 he produced the short film Aces Wild.[1]
